You’d be forgiven for assuming the famous Margarita is Mexico’s most popular cocktail – but in fact it’s the humble Paloma that takes the prize. The Paloma is one of our favorite all-time drinks – it’s easy to make, delicious, and wonderfully refreshing.
We define a Paloma as being made with grapefruit soda rather than juice; for a fresh take, search for the “Paloma Fresca” instead. We’re partial to Jarritos for the grapefruit soda, but Fresca and Squirt are tasty as well.
- 2 parts Blanco tequila or Aged tequila
- ½ part Lime juice
- 4 parts Grapefruit soda
Build in the order given in an ice-filled tall glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime or grapefruit.
